Someone needs to tell the Anna Friel character that bathroom doors have locks.....

I am intrigue by all that is happening, and just wonder how it is all going to come together at the end. The trouble is these days I am inclined to get the men mixed up, they all look the same!

Managed to stay awake during the second episode and have got into it. I've always liked Anna Friel since her Brookside days. Husband was shocked out of his slumber by my gasp at the nudity scene so consequently watched the rest of it too grin

I agree Parsley, she’s a very annoying actress, but I’ve only watched one episode, and I’ll try the next one, but I think the whole programme may annoy me

I started watching this as I was intrigued after reading the posts about the thong, the bathroom door and the messy kitchen. I have watched two episodes and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I will stick with it although I find drippy Anna Friel annoying in every part I have seen her play.

Not at all Atqui I watch all sorts of dramas that others are critical of, can't beat a good bit of escapism.

Atqui Thu 22-Aug-19 12:20:32

After much searching , unplugging and re plugging I finally found episode 6. I really enjoyed this series, and was pleased that the final episode tied up ends while leaving opportunity for another series. A good bit of escapism in my obviously dull life!!

Sara65 Tue 20-Aug-19 21:50:41

We’ve only watched the one episode so far, and I’m still a little unclear about who belongs to who.

Anna Friel played a frantic, intense character as usual, she seemed to be racing around doing very little, if she can find time between racing backwards and forwards in her car with various children, and having sex on worktops with strangers, she could give her kitchen a good tidy up.

As previously mentioned, several things seem ridiculous, if I was going to have sex in the bathroom, I’d definitely lock the door, I too am a bit bothered about the no knickers, and presumably no clean up, I hope she didn’t leave a stain on the chair!

Finally, only a total slut would then go to bed with her husband without having a shower! Yuck!

I dare say I’ll be watching tomorrow though!8

Six episodes, Atqui. How frustrating for you!

I found it to be quite watchable and I rather like Anna Friel.

Some of the comments on this thread have made me laugh. The girl did indeed look years older than she was supposed to be!

Atqui Tue 20-Aug-19 21:24:07

and yes it’s ‘ contrived nonsense’ but entertaining!

Atqui Tue 20-Aug-19 21:22:47

By the way I always wonder about the lack of a post coital freshen up - particularly as she didn’t put back any knickers -eugh - as th young ones say !!

Atqui Tue 20-Aug-19 21:16:36

We’ve watched five episodes , but can’t download another one, AnnS1 - how many episodes were there. Up to now each subsequent episode downloaded but not episode 6 .,It’s v frustrating!

I thought most of this was contrived nonsense except for the storyline of the compulsive gambler, his physiotherapist wife and their daughter, I enjoyed this part very much. It seemed like two stories in one to me and then I read that it was based on two books.

BlueBelle Sun 18-Aug-19 04:22:42

Got into it, watched the whole lot on iPad and thoroughly enjoyed it I think the tangle of the three woman’s stories was well done and yes there were some bits that you had to wonder about but it is fiction so the author does have the right to some poetic licence
Depends if you are able to see it as a story or wether you need it to be a factual piece of viewing I guess
But a thumbs up from me apart from the bathroom scene 👍🏼

Grandma2213 Sun 18-Aug-19 02:37:27

I was looking forward to this but was disappointed. The bathroom bonk was very silly! OK so she dropped the thong but wouldn't they both have come down very sweaty (I do have some vague memories, though it has been a very long time!!) There may well have been some 'Monica Lewinsky type stains' on that lovely dress too. The going back for her knickers scenes were also very contrived.

Now the other lady who might need to make some money to support her family I can understand, though fortunately have never been in that position myself.

I'll keep watching. There might be something more interesting about to develop, otherwise the scenery is worth watching!

Justme67 Sat 17-Aug-19 09:44:17

Let us not forget this is FICTION

loopyloo Sat 17-Aug-19 08:50:20

Sounds dreadful! Must watch it......

Sparklefizz Sat 17-Aug-19 08:14:35

I often wonder how the woman in a steamy and impromptu sexual encounter manages to have sex without actually removing her knickers

I remember an episode of Neighbours about 30 years ago when the character Daphne gave birth while still wearing her tights! It caused great mockery and hilarity.

Sparklefizz Sat 17-Aug-19 08:10:43

Annepl How do these people always manage to do their... er business and not need to freshen up after?

There's never any foreplay or use of condoms either! Just sayin'

Sparklefizz Sat 17-Aug-19 08:09:27

Like Seacliff I was relaxed about it, binge-watched and enjoyed the whole thing. It's true, there were holes in the plot, but so what?

Lessismore Fri 16-Aug-19 20:51:02

Do they only have one jumper shop there?

annep1 Fri 16-Aug-19 20:24:55

By the way I found it boring and incredible and was very disappointed.

grannyticktock Fri 16-Aug-19 20:24:03

The sleepover thing was all a bit weird.

First, would a "busy" mother mark her daugher's first period by telling her to take an unauthorised day off school, and then take her shopping? I know the event was long overdue, the girl appearing to be about 18, but even so ...

Youngsters are in constant touch by text etc, so why wouldn't the other girl have got in touch with her friend or her mother when she wasn't picked up?

Sar53 Fri 16-Aug-19 20:09:30

I've watched 4 episodes so far and yes I am enjoying it. It's not the best thing I've seen but no better or worse than lots of other things.
There really isn't very much worth watching at the moment .

AnnS1 Fri 16-Aug-19 19:42:36

I watched it all, complete series is on STV player. Lots of “holes” in it but wanted to see how it ended. There is also a book available.
